Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa

(75+ reviews on the web)
Ferry
See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yanagawa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yanagawa River Boat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
